Each year, a new leadership team in the corps of cadets is chosen by the administration, Naval Science Department, and educators at Admiral Farragut Academy. With over 85 rising seniors entering the 2018-19 school year, Naval Science has decided to separate the corps of cadets into two regiments which reflects the model used by many other Prep school academies.
What does this mean? One leadership regiment, which includes the regimental commander, the regimental staff, and the battalion leaders, will lead during the first semester of the 2018-19 school year. During the end of the first semester, a new regiment will be chosen to lead during the second semester which will give additional cadets the opportunity to earn positions and that valuable experience of leading their peers.
As an academic institution, our job is to give our students the necessary tools to be successful at the university level. Most universities are looking for well-rounded individuals who are involved and doing well academically, athletically, and are involved in extracurricular activities.
With the additional leadership positions, our students will have an even greater opportunity to shine at AFA as well as in future endeavors.
The first regiment for the 2018-19 school year has been chosen and will be announced early next week.
Leadership is the craft of persuading a gathering to act toward accomplishing a shared objective. In a business setting, this can mean coordinating laborers and partners with a technique to address the organization’s issues.
Authority catches the basics of being capable and ready to motivate others. Powerful authority depends on thoughts — both unique and acquired — that are actually conveyed to others in a manner that draws in them enough to go about as the pioneer believes them should act.
A pioneer motivates others to act while at the same time coordinating the way that they act. They should be amiable enough for others to follow their orders, and they should have the decisive reasoning abilities to know the most ideal way to utilize the assets available to an association.
